Comments: I finally led this climb. This climb definitely tests your ability to climb run out, commit to small holds and does it all over big exposure. I think there could be a bolt or two added to make it less psychologically demanding.

Comments: This is a hidden gem still not listed in the Ogden guidebook. Takes all sorts of pro, and the glue-ins are well placed! Good find!

Comments: I have a feeling that this climb and the grades for this climb is confused with the one next to it. Collateral Damage feels like 5.11a and the headwall on this climb is 5.11c for tall people, much harder for short people.

Comments: In 2+ years there has been only one incident of rock throwing. Let's not generalize. The crag is safe, villagers are friendly. Having somebody who can speak a little bit of the language is always helpful. Melkam Climbing!!!

Comments: my routes are well calculated, finely tuned! i wouldnt (and couldnt) have done it any other way... should your ego keep me from developing rock climbing routes in far off places? no, but were you willing to take a flight, climb with adolescent goat herder kids with nothing and do these routes yourself, then you would truly know proud.

Comments: In this foto you can see the crack of the 2nd pitch that appears right where the climber's rope disappears. This crack is amazing and should not be missed if you come to Armora Gedel!
